The Missouri Reverse Transfer Program provides an opportunity for students who have transferred from a two-year college to a four-year college or university to qualify for an associate degree.

If you who have completed at least 15 credit hours at a two-year college and transferred to a four-year college or university in Missouri, you may be eligible to participate in the program.

The program allows you to transfer college credit you have earned at a four-year school back to the two-year school you attended to complete the requirements for an associate degree.

If you are not currently attending college but have earned credit at a two-year and four-year school, you also may be eligible to receive a reverse transfer degree.


The Reverse Transfer Program offers several benefits:

  • An associate degree can open the door to more job opportunities and higher pay.
  • You can earn an associate degree while pursuing your bachelor’s degree.
  • An associate degree can help you meet the general education requirements at a four-year college or university.

How to apply

Applying for a reverse transfer degree is a simple and seamless process. You will need to give the four-year college or university you are attending permission to share your grade transcripts with the two-year college you attended.

All public and a number of independent colleges and universities in the state participate in the Missouri Reverse Transfer Program.

For more information, contact the reverse transfer coordinator at your college or university.
